Submitted by Susanna J Westen on

UW Slavic languages and literatures PhD student Cyrus Rodgers has been chosen by the Society for Slovene Studies as the 2014 recipient of the Rado Lenček Award for outstanding original research by a graduate student.  In his paper on Encoding Suppressed Societal Trauma in Slovene Literary and Visual Arts:  Boris Pahor and Lojze Spacal, Drago Jančar and Stane Kregar, Cyrus makes new and significant discoveries that can be expected to have an impact on the way these artists and writers are viewed in their own country.  The paper will be published in the journal Slovene Studies in 2015.
